Sponsored:No Requires documentation:


To reproduce
  • Open a 2.3 instance - this bug does not seem to affect 2.2 or earlier
  • In a free text field in one of the edit templates for entities (info objects, actors, terms, repositories, etc), add a % to some text
  • Save the record
Error encountered
  • Entire field where the % sign is included will not appear in the view page
Expected result
  • Text appears as usual
  • Doesn't appear to be happening in 2.2 - so it could be XSS related, but impacted by something changed in 2.3
  • Static pages are not affected
  • Could potentially have to do with the regex changes around the custom linking formats?
  • Might need to check the render value method?
